Development Update 8

More info available here

Hello Everyone!

Thank you so much for the positive response to The Abyss update for No Man’s Sky, released only a few days ago. We’ve really enjoyed seeing players experiment with the new base parts, explore the enhanced aquatic environments in the Nautilon submarine, and share their close encounters with fearsome underwater predators.

The team here is keeping up the pace this week with another update, patching up a few issues and introducing the next Community Research mission.

Community Research Update

This week, Priest Entity Nada is reaching out to explorers for assistance with Polo’s research missions. Their Gek friend, rattled by the events revisited by the time-altering device, has fallen into an introspective mood, and appears to have withdrawn from the project. Nada intends to act fast to overcome this - with help from their traveller friends across the galaxies.

Nada requests that explorers travel to a strange, colourless planet, and photograph underwater fauna in the darkest depths there. They conjecture that evidence of life enduring in the harshest of conditions will be of comfort to Polo, and - hopefully - will work to restore their usual upbeat disposition.



From the Quicksilver Synthesis Bot

Polo’s synthetic lifeform has generated a number of new collectibles for explorers to trade their Quicksilver for. Several new marine-themed decorations for bases are available, all with customisable palettes...



A living colony of delicate curly coral.



A cluster of aquatic crystals, featuring an unusual marbled colouration.



A luminescent candelabra bloom.



A barnacle that can be placed to encrust the walls of traveller bases.

And a new underwater gesture is also available, to aid underwater communication between aquanauts:



Development Update

Update 1.71 is now released to all platforms, and the full patch notes are available to read below. It is hard to believe it is already November - this has been such an intense, productive, and emotional year for No Man’s Sky - and there are further strides to take in our journey before 2018 is out. Thanks for being here with us, and for all your encouraging messages of support. We are listening.

Thank you so much,
Sean

No Man's Sky The Abyss Release

Hello Everyone!

A new free update has released today for all No Man's Sky players. We've called it The Abyss, because it's a seasonal update and reimagines underwater gameplay, focusing on some of the eerier elements of No Man's Sky.

No Man's Sky NEXT launched just a couple of months ago. We have been absolutely overwhelmed by the positive response. We are excited to be on this journey with you.

We have been adding new free content, community missions and improvements to No Man's Sky every week. From small features like allowing players to customise body shape, to large gameplay additions like the Pilgrim motorbike, and companion features such as addition of discovery leaderboards to the Galactic Atlas, allowing the community to track progress between factions.

While we continue to add these quality of life enhancements and small improvements to the game, we are also still releasing major titled updates, starting with The Abyss.

https://youtu.be/YIrCX5PomuA

The Abyss introduces aquatic environments with over 5 times more variety, varied creature behaviours, improved underwater visuals and much more.

Here are some things you might notice from the trailer...

FLORA AND FAUNA
The variety and visual quality of underwater biomes has been greatly improved. Experience rare exotic aquatic biomes as you explore new depths.

Underwater creatures have become more frequent, and more interesting. Aquatic life inhabits the full depth of the ocean, and unique terrifying creatures can be encountered on the ocean floor.



AQUATIC MISSIONS
A new story, The Dreams of the Deep, brings a new context to the depths and a dark narrative to No Man’s Sky. Discover the fate of a troubled crew stranded from a freighter crash by the rising tides, or explore underwater ruins to uncover the tale of a lost soul trapped deep beneath the waves.



SUNKEN WRECKS
Investigate sunken ruins and find ancient treasures, or dive to submerged buildings to find remnants of their lost occupants. Discover and scavenge lost cargo from gigantic freighter wrecks. Use the terrain manipulator to excavate treasures buried in the nearby ocean floor. Find and repair rare crashed star ships to restore them from the seabed to the skies.



SUBMARINE
Master the depths of planets using a new Exocraft, the Nautilon. This submersible vehicle gives new meaning to underwater navigation, combat and mining – and can be summoned to any ocean on the planet, as well as docked at underwater buildings. Upgrade your submersible with installable Submarine Technology and customise the Nautilon to stand out from your fellow explorers.



SUBMERSIBLE BUILDING MODULES
Over a dozen new base parts have been added to unlock more creative possibilities underwater. Construct the new Marine Shelter for brief respite from the oceanic pressure, and use its protection to reach new depths. New glass corridors, viewing bays and multistory submersible view domes provide travellers the perfect view of the surrounding ocean, and a decorative indoor Aquarium brings aquatic life into your habitat.




We hope you enjoy this and what follows – and we look forward to meeting you out there! Our journey continues.

Thanks so much,
Sean

About This Game

Inspired by the adventure and imagination that we love from classic science-fiction, No Man's Sky presents you with a galaxy to explore, filled with unique planets and lifeforms, and constant danger and action.

In No Man's Sky, every star is the light of a distant sun, each orbited by planets filled with life, and you can go to any of them you choose. Fly smoothly from deep space to planetary surfaces, with no loading screens, and no limits. In this infinite procedurally generated universe, you'll discover places and creatures that no other players have seen before - and perhaps never will again.

Embark on an epic voyage

At the centre of the galaxy lies a irresistible pulse which draws you on a journey towards it to learn the true nature of the cosmos. But, facing hostile creatures and fierce pirates, you'll know that death comes at a cost, and survival will be down to the choices you make over how you upgrade your ship, your weapon and suit.

Find your own destiny

Your voyage through No Man's Sky is up to you. Will you be a fighter, preying on the weak and taking their riches, or taking out pirates for their bounties? Power is yours if you upgrade your ship for speed and weaponry.

Or a trader? Find rich resources on forgotten worlds and exploit them for the highest prices. Invest in more cargo space and you'll reap huge rewards.

Or perhaps an explorer? Go beyond the known frontier and discover places and things that no one has ever seen before. Upgrade your engines to jump ever farther, and strengthen your suit for survival in toxic environments that would kill the unwary.

Share your journey

The galaxy is a living, breathing place. Trade convoys travel between stars, factions vie for territory, pirates hunt the unwary, and the police are ever watching. Every other player lives in the same galaxy, and you can choose to share your discoveries with them on a map that spans known space. Perhaps you will see the results of their actions as well as your own...

Now including...

Play with all 4 major updates since launch: Foundation, Pathfinder, Atlas Rises and the massive NEXT update.

An epic voyage to the centre of a shared universe awaits, allowing you to explore, trade, fight and survive alone or with friends.
